Project Overview

Boralex’s West River Solar project is a 20-megawatt (MWac) photovoltaic solar energy generation facility to be located in the Town of Moreau, Saratoga County, New York. The project will include solar arrays and other project features such as the site roads and the electrical interconnection.

Currently in early-stage development, the facility is expected to be commissioned in Q4 2025. Boralex is in the process of developing all studies, supporting materials, and applications required to complete the permitting and interconnection approval requirements.

This project aligns with the New York State Public Service Commission’s Clean Energy Standard, which supports the development of clean energy and renewable resources in New York State (NYS).
